內容簡介

充滿寓言,與神秘色彩。
看似虛擬的作品,描述的情節卻比你活得更真實;不斷觸動你心。
深度、幽默,卻更憂傷的虛構小說。──Independent on Sunday

榮獲美國國家圖書獎,都柏林文學獎的美國小說家和散文家,被譽為「偉大的美國小說家」;《自由》一書也被視為偉大美國小說之一。

從渴望理解與自由的生活,到維持生命中的純粹,擅長以小段小段描述,透過主角長串對白,來表達每一種想法、論辯、誤會與傾訴,Jonathan Franzen維持一貫創作風格,睽違兩年的Purity一書,縱貫數十年,橫跨歐洲、美洲、南美等大陸,貫穿幾代人的美國追根史詩,以象徵作者筆下青春的、理想主義的、住在奧克蘭Purity Tyler,小名為Pip的女主角為全書靈魂人物,背負十三萬學生貸款的她,跟母親相依為命,從不知父親是誰,不知身世的她,過著隱世又單純的生活,直到她起心動念,想尋根,找尋父親,從奧克蘭追到玻利維亞,再回溯到柏林圍牆倒塌前的東德,破壞了單純的寧靜生活,顛覆了忠誠的純粹基因,原本黑白是非分明的世界,從此混淆了……

繼The Correction《修正》與Freedom《自由》兩部偉大的暢銷小說,作者Jonathan Franzen始終不離政治、愛情與親情的主題,如果說,The Correction《修正》寫得是主角渴望得到裡解與接納,在不斷修正中跟被認可的自己相遇。而Freedom《自由》,Jonathan Franzen探究自由帶給我們甚麼?書中四個主人翁,自由戀愛結果自由離婚,自由不受拘束的人到頭來獲得多少自由空間?自由與幸福是等號嗎?那麼Purity則提出龐大質疑,是不是只能在寂靜的單純世界中,才能讓獲得幸福呢?一部再次證明自己與John Uplike, Philip Roth能齊名的當代作家地位。

A magnum opus for our morally complex times from the author of FREEDOM and THE CORRECTIONS

Young Pip Tyler doesn't know who she is. She knows that her real name is Purity, that she's saddled with $130,000 in student debt, that she's squatting with anarchists in Oakland, and that her relationship with her mother – her only family – is hazardous. But she doesn't have a clue who her father is, why her mother has always concealed her own real name, or how she can ever have a normal life.

Enter the Germans. A glancing encounter with a German peace activist leads Pip to an internship in South America with The Sunlight Project, an organisation that traffics in all the secrets of the world – including, Pip hopes, the secret of her origins. TSP is the brainchild of Andreas Wolf, a charismatic provocateur who rose to fame in the chaos following the fall of the Berlin Wall. Now on the lam in Bolivia, Andreas is drawn to Pip for reasons she doesn't understand, and the intensity of her response to him upends her conventional ideas of right and wrong.

Purity is a dark-hued comedy of youthful idealism, extreme fidelity, and murder. The author of THE CORRECTIONS and FREEDOM has created yet another cast of vividly original characters, Californians and East Germans, good parents and bad parents, journalists and leakers, and he follows their intertwining paths through landscapes as contemporary as the omnipresent Internet and as ancient as the war between the sexes. Jonathan Franzen is a major author of our time, and PURITY is his edgiest and most searching book yet.
